After its world premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival we finally have the first look at three clips from Terry Gilliam’s “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” thanks to CommeAuCinema.com
“In my modest opinion these excerpts look amazing. I can’t wait to see Jude Law, Colin Farrell and Johnny Depp in it. Take a look below at Heath Ledger as Tony, Andrew Garfield as Anton, Lily Cole as Valentina and Christopher Plummer as Doctor Parnassus.
The fantasy adventure is orchestrated by the ageless Doctor Parnassus (Christopher Plummer), who has the power to project people into their own imagination. However, the fascinating journey always ends with a choice, which can lead to the best or the worst. And Parnassus, as an inveterate gambler, has his own problems. Having won a wager with the Devil, he has made two successive deals with Mr. Nick (Tom Waits) over the ages. Granted immortality first and eternal youth next, he once agreed to deliver his first-born to the Devil when he or she reached the age of 16. And now that Valentina (Lily Cole) is only days away from the fatal age, the Devil is already prowling in the vicinity.
